About Plot Style Tables

A collection of plot styles assigned to a layout or to the Model tab. There are two
types of plot style tables: color-dependent and named.

Color-dependent plot style tables (CTB) use an object’s color to determine characteristics such as lineweight. Every
red object in a drawing is plotted the same way. While you can edit plot styles in
a color-dependent plot style table, you cannot add or delete plot styles. There are
256 plot styles in a color-dependent plot style table, one for each color.

Named plot style tables (STB) contain user-defined plot styles. When you use a named plot style table, objects
that have the same color may be plotted differently, based on the plot style assigned
to the object. A named plot style table can contain as many or as few plot styles
as required. Named plot styles can be assigned to objects or layers, just like any
other property.

You can use the Plot Style Manager to add, delete, rename, copy, and edit plot style
tables. Both color-dependent and named plot style tables are stored in the Plot Styles
folder by default.
